#1 No.

The cautionary tale cited yesterday from 1954 Vietnam applies here. The jihadis want the land more than the French do. In the end that will make the difference.

#3 Muggsy, maybe that's an idea for a negotiation.
France gets its cities and banelieus back and those folk all move to Mali and the French leave.
